Summary

The long-awaited sequel to the acclaimed Death and the Penguin Andrey Kurkovrs"s first book to be published in English,Death and the Penguin, was hailed by leading critics in the US and the UK as "a tragicomic masterpiece" (The Daily Telegraph) of suspense about life on the crime-riddled streets of an impoverished, post-Soviet Kiev. But until now, fans havenrs"t been able to read the sequel and find out what happened to Viktor and his silent cohort, the penguin Misha, whom Viktor was forced to abandon at the end of the novel while fleeing Mafia vengeance. Admirers need wait no longer. Now available for the first time in the US, Penguin Lost sees Viktor grab at the opportunity to return to Kiev incognito and launch an intensive, guilt-wracked search for Misha. Itrs"s a search that will take Viktor across the Ukraine to Moscow and back, vividly depicting a troubled landscape. It once again lands Viktor in league with a series of criminals and corrupt officials, each of whom know something of what happened to Misha, and each of whom are willing to pass that information along if Viktor will just help them with one more job. . . And itrs"s a tale told once again in a style thatrs"s part Bulgakov and part Hitchcock, simultaneously funny and ominous, nearly absurd and all-too-real. Readers may find themselves rooting even harder for Viktor this time, as he presses forward on his odyssey under even more dangerous circumstances, in another brilliantly rich and topical book from a contemporary Russian master.
